A Challenge & Happy Mail ...

Hello there ...
How are you all? ... I hope the sun is shining down in your neck of the woods ... it is here ... though the temperature is expected to drop down to almost freezing by tonight ... crazy weather ...
I've had a good day ... been for coffee with my friend this morning and an afternoon of creativity ... 
First I have a card and tag which I made for this weeks' colour challenge at CR84FN  based on this pretty picture ...


... and another beautiful, philisophical quote ...
I love this colour combination ... so vibrant and yet I didn't think I was going to be able to put something together ... so I left it a few days and then came up with this 


The background paper is an image from the Graphic Fairy which I enlarged ... my red paper is Core'dinations which I stamped on ... the pretty poppy is from Websters Pages Spring Market 


... a tiny piece of scrap doily, ribbon and sparkly button from my stash ...
I liked this combination so much that I made a tag to go with it too 


My Websters Pages are from the digital collection which gives me the freedom to alter the size of things so that my Poppy is obviously a little smaller on this tag than on the card ...
You can see I had a wee bit of trouble with my sewing machine ... but I think it adds to the tag

Next I want to share some Happy Mail from the ever so kind Amy aka Papertrails Leaver ... you may remember that she won my giveaway and take a look at what arrived today ...


a closer look at the beautiful card ...


"Thank You so much Amy"
I LOVE everything ... the lace ... pins ...  tickets ... everything! ... So very kind of you  

Have yourselves a lovely day / evening and I'll be back with you soon
